Stickball at the Fort

Date & Time
Sunday, Aug. 18, 2024
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Ticketing Free

Join Fort Pitt Museum staff and members of Native tribes who once dwelled in our region for a weekend filled with the American Indian game of stickball. 

One of the oldest organized sports played in America, stickball is a precursor to lacrosse and shares aspects of many modern-day field sports like soccer, field hockey, and American football.

Historically, the game was used to resolve conflicts within tribal communities and between tribes from other towns and regions. A tradition passed down from generation to generation, stickball is still played competitively by Native tribes across America.

Learn techniques and test your skills at stickball on the Fort Pitt lawn.

Admission to the Stickball at Fort Pitt event is free, but regular admission applies to enter the Fort Pitt Museum and access its exhibitions.
